    <div id=”content_id”>Two people familiar with the situation say the New Orleans Saints and free-agent safety Kurt Coleman have agreed to terms of a three-year contract.The people spoke to The Associated Press on Saturday on condition of anonymity because the roster move has not been announced.

    The 29-year-old Coleman is an eight-year veteran out of Ohio State who played the past three seasons for Carolina.

    He started in all 12 games in which he played last season and made 76 solo or assisted tackles. He also recovered a fumble.

    Coleman joins a roster that includes safeties Vonn Bell and Marcus Williams Darren Helm Jersey , and his addition raises the prospects that fellow safety Kenny Vaccaro, who is set to become a free agent this offseason, won’t return to New Orleans, where he began his career in 2013.

    Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton doesn’t believe he could have scripted a better visit to Buffalo on Sunday.The donation he made to Buffalo’s Roswell Park Cancer Institute to open the day was special. The two standing ovations he received from Bills fans before the preseason game were chilling.

    And Dalton was able to keep his emotions in check on the first snap from scrimmage to hit John Ross for a 57-yard touchdown pass in leading the Bengals to a 26-13 victory.

    “It was a good day. I think the way it started was the best part,” Dalton said. “The game went well Authentic Drew Brees Jersey , too.”

    The Bills could not say the same about their offense, and a three-way quarterback competition that remains unsettled.

    Rookie Josh Allen struggled in his first preseason start , while getting little protection from an offensive line that allowed five sacks in the first half alone. He finished 6 of 12 and was sacked for more yards (39) than he had passing (34).

    “I didn’t do a good enough job getting the ball out on time,” the first-round pick said. “I’ve got to do a better job, but there’s a lot to learn from.”

    Dalton eased whatever concerns the starters raised with their sputters in last week’s 21-13 win at Dallas by producing three scoring drives 鈥?two touchdowns and a field goal 鈥?over five series against the Bills.

    Dalton finished 11 of 16 for 180 yards and two touchdowns 鈥?including a 14-yarder to A.J. Green 鈥?to celebrate the warm reception he received in Buffalo nine months after playing a key role in the Bills making the playoffs and ending a 17-year playoff drought.

    It happened in the final minute of the season finale against Baltimore on New Year’s Eve. Dalton’s 49-yard touchdown pass on fourth down to Tyler Boyd sent the Bengals to a 31-27 win Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey , and eliminated the Ravens from playoff contention.

    Bills fans responded immediately by making over $450,000 to Dalton’s charitable foundation.

    “It’s a crazy story, and it’s been fun to be on this side of it,” Dalton said. “The best part is all the money that was raised.”

    Buffalo’s offense continues to raise concerns two weeks before opening the regular season at Baltimore.

    Allen generated just three first downs before being forced out of the game in the final minute of the first half. He was escorted off the field to be evaluated for a possible concussion after being tackled by Carlos Dunlap in the end zone.

    Though Allen was cleared to return, he stayed on the sideline while Nathan Peterman finished the game.

    This was a week after the starters went three-and-out in four series and starter AJ McCarron was sacked once and hit several other times before being sidelined with an injury to his right throwing shoulder in a 19-17 win at Cleveland.

    “It’s disappointing Lars Eller Jersey ,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said. “We’re going to make sure we’re helping him with protection and catching the football and not beating ourselves with penalties. Let’s just start there.”

    SACK ATTACK

    Linebacker Carl Lawson had 2 1/2 of the Bengals five sacks in the first half, and nearly had an interception. He was in position to pick off Allen’s underthrown pass up the right sideline only to have tight end Charles Clay break it up.

    PETERMAN TIME

    The Bengals led 23-0 before the Bills mounted a comeback with two scores late in the third quarter.

    Peterman hit Jason Croom for a 17-yard touchdown, and then Travaris Cadet scored on a 1-yard run on a drive set up by Rafael Bush intercepting Bengals backup Matt Barkley’s pass. Peterman finished 16 of 21 for 200 yards, and upped his preseason total to 33 of 41 for 432 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.

    WELCOME BACK

    Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert had one catch for 11 yards while targeted three times in making his preseason debut. The Bengals’ 2013 first-round draft pick is coming off back surgery and was limited to playing just two games last year.

    INJURIES

    Bengals: Left tackle Cordy Glenn stood on the sideline, but did not return after hurting his right shoulder in the first quarter. Coach Marvin Lewis said Glenn was fine. Guard Christian Westerman (back) and running back Jarveon Williams (left knee) did not return.

    Bills: Backup linebacker Julian Stanford did not return after hurting his nose in the first half. RB LeSean McCoy (hip/groin) and left tackle Dion Dawkins (hip) did not play after being injured in practice this week.

    ANTHEM UPDATE

    The Bengals stood together along the sideline except for Dunlap Golden Tate Jersey White , who stood on the field at the 45 with his hand on his chest. No member of the Bills appeared to protest.
